Default Hybrid help

Just looking to get some recommendations. I am making a pretty big change in my setup. For the last 8 years, I've been playing with my old 80s mid, the Wilson Ultra 2, which has a high swingweight and great feel, but over the last few months, I've been thinking that I need something I can get around a little quicker as I continue to play Open events. I used to use a full on multi setup in my Ultra 2s of Xcel Power strung between 60 and 65 pounds, depending on the season.

I've decided on the Blade 98 18-20, which I demoed and really liked. I demoed it in both a full mutli and full poly, and found I liked what poly did, but I want to hybrid so I get a slightly better feel. My multi of choice is Xcel Power 17, and I am going to hybrid it with RPM Blast 17 for starters. The question: poly in the mains or multi in the mains? What are the benefits/drawbacks of each setup. Also, what would you recommend for tensions on each?

Any help appreciated!!
